In recent years, Georgia has created a program to increase the use of home/community-based services to help people avoid long-term institutional care.
If someone has lived in an inpatient facility for at least 90 consecutive days but would rather live in their own home, apartment, or group setting, they may be eligible for the MFP program.
For more information, contact Megan Vogt at the N.E. Georgia Area Agency on Aging, 706-583-2546 or 800-474-7540 (ext. 209 for both numbers).
The program is funded through a grant from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the Ga. Dept. of Health.
